Data Technology, Looker, BigQuery
Laurens is the largest care organization in Rotterdam, with 30 locations and over 6,000 care professionals. It provides home care, rehabilitation, nursing home care, and palliative care for thousands of older people in the city.
Navigating Tomorrow's Care Challenges
The aging population in the Netherlands poses a growing challenge for the care sector, with more people needing care and fewer resources available. To address this, Laurens, a care provider, focuses on digitalization to efficiently manage care with limited staffing and funding. The need for a clear view of the future drives the adoption of Google Cloud data solutions. In collaboration with Xebia, Laurens aims to enhance efficiencies and strategic decision-making.
Transforming with Google Cloud and Xebia
Facing the challenge of outdated on-premises data solutions causing silos, Laurens, in partnership with Xebia, undertakes the modernization of its data and business intelligence with Google Cloud. The choice of Looker and BigQuery, in collaboration with Xebia, offers a scalable and integrated solution. The implementation allows Laurens to migrate its data, gain real-time insights, and efficiently manage resources, from weekly budget reports to streamlined HR processes.
Data-Driven Care Excellence in Collaboration
With Google Cloud's tools and with the expertise of Xebia, Laurens achieves a unified view of data, improving administrative processes and refining care provision. The integrated data allows for efficient budgeting decisions, optimizing staffing, and improving patient care. Looker dashboards, developed in collaboration with Xebia, enable quick insights, from matching available beds to patients to automating alerts for incomplete registrations. Looker dashboards provide a user-friendly interface, allowing swift access to patient files for necessary adjustments and a remarkable increase in completed registrations to 90% versus the prior 40%. The development of a data culture, guided by Xebia, empowers departments across the organization to access and utilize data for informed decision-making, steering Laurens toward a future of improved care provision.
